Thanks for your help! I had found some of the marriage info but not the date. According to the 1880 census, Henry and Eliza Haire arrived in NY 4/29/1880. Subsequently they had 8 children, 6 of whom survived to adulthood. Henry Haire died in 1898 according to nyc records. Perhaps the others listed in the mail may be cousins? is there any other information about the parents of Eliza Martin and Henry Haire?

There are two sources of baptism and marriage records in Northern Ireland: free to view pay for records pay website although a not for profit
organization. Small fees to view, more for the records.

After 1864 a civil registration of bmd's should be available. PRONI
Public Records Of Northern Ireland, Belfast for information

Do you have the children's name for Henry and Eliza, in order, oldest first. These names would probably have their grandparents names which would help to locate where they are from. The marriage certificate would contain the
father's name of both participants but also the place/parish.

In 1864 Armagh underwent a tax called the Griffith Valuation and at that time there were 66 Haire's and 132 Martin's.
You would to match up parish's the reduce the amounts.
You could use a simple version of Griffith Valuation

Henry Hare x 4 in 3 Parish's Drumcree, Kilmore, Seagoe
William Hare x 1, 3 x Haire Parish Kilmore, Newry, Shankill which just gives Parish's and townlands
hopefully getting down to just a few parish's that Eliza Martin & Henry Haire have in common.

RC or Protestant? also makes a difference.

In an 1881 Commercial Directory there is a Henry Haire on West St. Portadown - a grocer?

Portadown was a Town in the Parish of Seagoe, Poor Law Union or Civil Registration District of Lurgan

In the british telephone book for Northern Ireland
there are just 3 Haire and 1 Hare but 35 Martin's including one in Portadown. All come with full address and post code.

You can look for gravestone inscriptions, there are some on websites and often libraries have copies of journals researched by local schools and heritage societies.

There is a UK company - expensive - that has inscriptions from 1900. It includes Seagoe. You would need to contact me for the name and website of the company as rootsweb don't like pay websites on the message board.
